Anyone else noticed?The keyboard is actually QWERTZ instead of QWERTY ;)
Yep, really nice. Proper keys, good battery and a good camera, been a while since I saw all this in one phone. Might be an upgrade for Symbian E Series but Blackberries were always way more expensive in my country. But there's no alternative so I expect it to do rather well.
Haha. Off topic, I can say that whoever made this phone's review (and the HTC One's also) is an LOTR fan.
Anw, great review as always.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2013phones with physical keypads are rarity these days. it's glad to know that at least one phon... morewhy would they? you can always get a Bluetooth keyboard of practically any size hooked into any other phone, you can find keyboards smaller than the one this phone has, or bigger, that is not an issue, the key for RIM its the messaging integration, that is the only way they can stand, and even then they had to move away from japanese market, so if it is not appealing to a market full of "suits" and CEOs its future seems quite hard indeed, they still need to fix a lot of bugs on their OS tho.
Nothing beats a physical keyboard for speedy text entry. Nothing. The Q10 has the best physical keyboard made, combined with the best mobile operating system bar none.
[deleted post]Exactly,Ur right.U can see this in blackberry's own site.
I've long withheld switching to Blackberry from my former Nokia E Series phones. The Blackberries are smoother, better OS and potential but with less stock features. The defunct E Series have more useful stock feature..better cameras, stock apps, FM radio, online radio, USB-on-the-go (!), battery life that present smartphones could only dream of, and more bang for the buck..
A few years forward, with no other alternative, this is the only qwerty messenger in the market. I currently own a Blackberry Bold 9900. It doesn't have a radio, the Q10 also doesn't have a radio I guess.. The apps are quite-a-lacking and pricing of what little apps BB has is frustrating at best. Maybe 2 years from now I'd get the Q10 as prices would have gone down. It's more expensive than the S4 (S3
They should make a slider phone like the torch,so that you dont have problems with watching videos and have the best of two worlds,touch and type
Still E7 best as a biz messenger/dox's exchange & for text / sms, email, etc... Btw; i like Q10
Nice phone. The qwerty pad is legendary...
More expensive than Xperia Z, S4, HTC One, Optimus G, K900 in my country though.. (35k php in the Philippines).
